Osun NSCDC Nabs Fake Doctor Over Pregnant Woman’s Death

Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) Osun State Command under the leadership of Commandant Michael Adaralewa has apprehended one Oladiti Saheed Toyin (m) 32yrs old, of No 2, Lakewu area, Ororuwo, Boripe Local Government area of Osun state for parading himself as a medical doctor. He allegedly attended to a pregnant woman during childbirth which led to her death.

According to a press release on Thursday, 2nd May 2024 signed by the Osun State Civil Defence PRO, ASC Kehinde Adeleke, said that the suspect whose highest qualification is Secondary School Certificate Examination (SSCE) has been operating an unlicensed clinic for the past six years and two months. He also has people who are undergoing training in his clinic as staff.

While making his confessional statement, the suspect, Oladiti Toyin said on the 15th of April, 2024, a pregnant woman with 9 months and 3 weeks pregnancy visited his hospital popularly known as OLORUNTOYIN CLINIC at No 2, Lakewu area, Ororuwo, Boripe Local Government, Osun State.

According to him, the pregnant woman could not continue her antenatal care at her previous hospital because she had a misunderstanding with her husband. The self–acclaimed doctor said he checked her blood pressure which was low and gave her some drugs. He thereafter asked her to come back whenever she fell into labour.

On Thursday, 18th April 2024, the woman began to experience labour symptoms and was in the hospital where she delivered a baby. The victim developed some complications shortly after and was later rushed to a nearby licensed hospital where she was pronounced dead on arrival.

Further discreet investigation revealed that the suspect also engaged in the training of people to become quack doctors like him with the sum of Five Thousand Naira only (N5,000).

The Commandant, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) Osun State command, Dr Michael Adaralewa said Section. 343(1e) of the Criminal Code Act which provides that any person who in a manner so rash or negligent as to endanger human life or likely cause harm to any other person gives medical or surgical treatment to any person whom he has undertaken to treat is guilty of a misdemeanour and is liable.

Commandant Adaralewa, therefore, assured members of the public that the suspect would be made to face the full wrath of the law upon the conclusion of an investigation. While calling on members of the public to be mindful of the medical institution they visit when seeking medical attention, he calls on the public to report quacks to security agencies for prompt action.
